Most Popular Provider in Dartford
Although Great Britain's energy markets are fully liberated, we can still see signs of the old electricity boards in supplier patterns around certain areas. For example, in Dartford, the most popular supplier is EDF Energy.
Dartford Energy Offices
Electricity supply around the UK used to be delivered to households by local electricity boards. For Dartford it was the 'South Eastern Electricity Board' (SEEBOARD). After privatisation in 1990, these electricity boards were forced to turn into plc companies. SEEBOARD plc joined '24Seven Utility Services' under the ownership of 'LE Group'. This new company became a part of EDF Energy in 2003. The distribution company, however, was bought by Cheung Kong Holdings to become Dartford's current DNO, UK Power Networks.
Dartford used to be supplied by its regional gas board, 'South Eastern Gas Board', between 1948 and 1972. It then, however, became a region of the British Gas Corporation.
